San Diego: Comic Con 2013 Updates and News Roundup

by ScreenCraft on July 23, 2013

A brief roundup from our trip down to Comic Con 2013 --

It was my best intention to attend several panels and at least one "Hall H" event, however I succeeded in only going to parties and meetings.  Highlight of the weekend was doing "the sprinkler" on the dance floor with Joss Whedon and taking a photo of my friends with the King of the Con, Mr. Nathan Fillion himself.  Seeing such favorites as Matt Groening and Bryan Cranston was a welcome surprise.  Speaking of Bryan Cranston, how awesome is this?
